    Welcome,
    Honing with a Nagura stone is a method that many of us shy away from; probably due to a lack of understanding in their history and use. Follow the link below to an article written by Straight Razor Place member Mainaman where you can get some insight into this method of honing.

    Enjoy the journey,,,,

    What are you working on?

    But if you have your DE handy why would you need an opener.

    It was a twist tip bottle but I had to prove my theory!

    First try with a Micromatic

    What is the coating on yours? As you can see in the pictures of mine it is well worn. I was wondering how it would work for a test of Duracote or Cerakote.
